In hunt for RSPCA prize

HUCKNALL and Bulwell people who shop at the Co-op will hopefully have helped the chain of shops to complete a notable hat-trick.

The Co-op, which has two shops in Hucknall and one in Bulwell, has been shortlisted for the prestigious RSPCA People’s Choice Supermarket award — an accolade which the retailer has held for the past two years.

A public vote to choose the winner has now ended. The Co-op has been shortlisted as one of four finalists because of its high animal-welfare standard for fresh pork and sausages, its commitment to supporting the Freedom Foods initiative, its eggs being free-range and its backing for British farming.
